Intro to the Atari Portfolio 16-Bit Personal Computer

A friend who sympathized with my video game addiction and penchant for all things Atari, game me this gem of a device. Far from being a laptop or any sort of gaming machine, I was facinated by it since seeing Edward Furlong rip off ATM machines with it in Terminator 2.

One can't help but wonder what Atari might have stumbled onto if it had further developed this handheld device.

Atari Portfolio - Technical Specifications

The Atari Portfolio is the first PC-compatible palmtop computer, and was released by Atari Corporation in 1989. The Portfolio was licenced from Distributed Information Processing (DIP) based in Guildford, Surrey, England. The original founding member of DIP was Ian Cullimore, fresh from his experiences at helping design the early Organiser products at Psion.
